Great introduction to Umphrey's Mcgee
This is one of the best one disc shows that I've heard of Umphrey's. This disc is great for those that have never heard the band before. They cover a variety of songs and do some great performances like 'Push the Pig', 'Glory', 'Nemo', 'In The Kitchen', and a sweet treat of 'Franklin's Tower' played with Phil Lesh!! This is a great short disc for those that already know Umphrey's Mcgee, and a superb show for those just discovering them!!

The fourth song.....
The Phil sit-in for "Franklin's Tower" was fine, but for me, the song that seems to have dug a groove deep into my neocortex is the little ditty "Glory". Simple bass line and melody, but sends my spirit soaring, for whatever reason. Reminds me of the Allman Brothers "Revival". I was impressed with this set; this group has a ton of potential. It will be fun to see where they take it.

a bit boomy
Download the other source (Rob R.'s), it sounds a lot better. This one is boomy and distant sounding.

Umphrey's McGee, like, yeah!
The sound is a little muddy inside the cavernous Civic Center, but this recording from the balcony is crispy. The lower registers pick up well. The show's energy gains major steam as it rolls along. A Phil Lesh guest appearance at the end lights the fuse to the crusty old Civic Center as they all blast through an amazing Franklin's Tower.
